A few reasons why Ah!rogya Bar contains these ingredients:
A popular food grain in the Southern parts of India, Ragi (Finger Millet), has uncountable benefits to all. Ragi is gluten-free, rich in dietary fibre, calcium, protein, iron, vitamin D and vitamin C. It aids in weight loss, reduces craving to eat excessively, manages the digestive tract, energises, as well as works as a natural relaxant inducing better sleep.
Also known as ‘gur’, jaggery is unrefined brown sugar considered healthier than the refined sugar that is predominantly consumed. This natural sweetener offers: vitamins, minerals, better immunity, helps regulate body temperature, relieves menstrual cramps, detoxifies the liver & blood and is a good source of energy.
A sweet-smelling spice, cardamom helps in reducing digestive distress, improves oral health, and stimulates better oxygen intake. It is safe for most people and also helps in preventing inflammation in the body, protects against cell damage, and lowers blood sugar levels.
Another natural sweetener – dates – are highly nutritious, fibrous and work as antioxidants diminishing many health risks. Dates are active in strengthening the bones, the brain, and the nervous system.
Peanut is a great source of unsaturated fat, protein, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. This tasty, crunchy seed also prevents gallstone formation and protects against heart diseases.
High in plant-based protein content, soya is often preferred as an alternative for meat & dairy products. This bean is filled with essential vitamins, minerals (calcium & iron), and fibre; and helps in lowering bad cholesterol levels.
Flax seeds (linseeds) are a good carrier of plant-based omega-3 fats, protein, and dietary fibre. They help control blood sugar and blood pressure levels, monitor appetite and regulate hormonal & menopausal conditions. A little consumption of flax can significantly maintain one’s health regime.
Pumpkin seeds are known to be the best source of magnesium which aids in regulating blood sugar level and maintaining bone strength. They also help secrete serotonin and melatonin (induces better sleep). Squalene (a substance not naturally found in humans), can improve retinal functioning and protect our eyes.
These wonderful, little sweet fruits are dried grapes that are filled with an enormous amount of fibre, vitamins, and minerals. They are enemies to toxins in the digestive tract, insomnia, hypertension, acidity, anaemia, and skin problems.
Ginger has a renowned reputation for its medicinal properties and food-enhancing quality. It is loaded with so many health benefits that cannot all be listed here. To name a few, ginger aids in fighting infections, Alzheimer’s Disease, cancer, severe menstrual cramps, indigestion, and heart diseases.
Sunflower seeds are a storehouse of a variety of vitamins, such as: A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E; and minerals like: manganese, selenium, calcium, iron, and zinc. These seeds contain healthy fats (polyunsaturated, monounsaturated) and help promote better mood, immunity, thyroid function, and new skin cells.
Figs are fruits that are instrumental in boosting ones’ skin, hair, liver, heart and digestive health. They even aid in managing weight, blood pressure, and blood sugar & cholesterol levels.
Khus Khus (poppy seeds), when taken in moderation leads to a healthier functioning of the brain and reduces the risk of cognitive disorders. They are rich in minerals that work at strengthening one’s bones, immune system, and the working of the thyroid gland.
This round, red fruit holds a treasure of antioxidants and minerals (iron, calcium potassium). It is anti-inflammatory, helps in better blood circulation (which helps in preventing blockages in heart arteries), and improves the functioning of the lungs, kidneys, bladder, and gut. It also aids immunity.
